I was watching net flicks and my xbox rebooted and flashed a red ring (bottom right) and it said E68. i shut it off and started it up again and works<did that twice<the unit was alittle hot...

The e68 error on your Xbox 360 is caused by a hard drive/HDD problem. It can be caused by an internal connection error with the hard drive, a general failure of the hard drive, or overheating of the hard drive. Basically, there is quite a large range of things that can cause the Xbox 360 e68 problem, which can make troubleshooting the issue slightly difficult.

To fix the e68 code on your Xbox 360 is to remove the internal hard drive and try playing your console without it. If it then works, then you can be sure that you can permanently fix the problem. If not, then you will have more serious issues on your console that will need to be checked over by Microsoft, as the e68 is generally believed to be related only to your console's hard drive/HDD.

Hope this helps.

My xbox 360 has one red ring and i dont know if i need a new on or can i fix it

An error code will appear on the screen as well, which states what component the 360 thinks is faulty.

E67, E68, E79
These could all have something to do with the hard-drive. Try taking the hard-drive out from the 360 and playing without it. If the error message disappears, then your hard-drive is faulty, and you will need to get a replacement. If the error message still appears, then something else is wrong with your 360, and you will need to send in the 360 for repair.

Any other error message is not user-serviceable. You will need to return your console for repair.

What happens when my xbox 360 arcade wont play any 360 games? My xbox 360 arcade will not play any of my 360 games. The disc are brand new. I bought the xbox 360 arcade used.

Find someone in your local area that can adjust the laser power level on the DVD drive. This is a temporary solution. A better solution is to buy a new drive off of ebay that is the same one that you have and change the PCB boards so you have the same PCB board in the new case with everything else. To see what drive you have, take the face plate off of the console. Look at the front of the DVD drive and there is a small hole on the lower right hand side of the drive. Look at the two wires inside the hole. Red and Black are a Samsung drive, White are a Lite-on drive, yellow are a Benq and a black plug is a hitichi.

This is very easy and only requires minimal soldering.

The xbox360elite the red light flashes and e68 comes up on the screen with different language on the tv screen is also showing.

E68 means that you have a bad hard drive. Take out your hard drive and turn the unit on to confirm. Once this is done just buy a new hard drive and your good to go! Or now Microsoft just released where you can use a Flash drive :]

How long does a xbox 360 warranty last?

The Red ring warranty was extended to 3 years and the rest of the errors are covered for 1 year. You are better off finding a local repair shop. Microsoft charges between $100 and $150 for most repairs now, and most local repair shops will fix it for less than $100. I have seen repairs offered for as little as $45 for the RROD. You could buy a new XBOX 360 Arcade and transfer your hard drive, you would get a new machine with the new processor and quieter DVD drive.
